A Sermon on Marriage

Dr. Robert F. Browning, pastor of Smoke Rise Baptist Church in Stone Mountain, Georgia, recently preached a sermon he titled, Wedding Bloopers. His text was Genesis 29:15-28. His sermon opens with this lead:

I have had flower arrangements catch on fire from flaming candles, storms erupt in the middle of an outdoor ceremony, a bride that fainted, not once but twice, and a host of other foibles occur during weddings. I have not, however, had anyone do what Jacob did and marry the wrong person on their wedding day. Or have I?

How many times have I heard someone say, “The person I married is not the person I thought I was marrying?” What do you do when you thought you married Rachel and end up living with Leah?
